Aromatherapy for Dogs

Nearly everyday we've been down to dog beach at Bayview for the dogs daily walks and swims, and yesterday we met a couple of friendly fellow dog owners. During our conversation they mentioned how helpful natural therapies had been for their dogs. They noticed one area on our dog Xena's side where she has these occasional skin problems, and they shared how a certain essential oil had been an effective solution to skin problems for their dog.

During my remedial massage career, I had worked with a lot of essential oils, so I was very interested to hear about their success with the oil that they had used. If you would like to know about these types of alternate solutions, check with animal naturopaths or aromatherapists in your area.
